Tell us about your practice: I help bright and talented people who are overworked, overwhelmed or disorganized get out of their own way and get things done, by working with the way they think.

Professional passion: I want people to stop beating themselves up over their perceived failure to live up to what they think they should be, to accept and embrace their unique selves (challenges and strengths), and to uncover the mindset and strategies to accomplish what they really want, creating a totally fulfilling life.
